The Costume & Textile Network
Join the SHARE Museums East Costume & Textiles Network for a hands-on opportunity to work with costume accessories to be displayed in a new exhibition at Hollytrees Museum, Colchester.
The exhibition, Accessorise All Areas, will feature accessories from the Colchester + Ipswich Museum Service’s collection.
This will be a practical opportunity for you to learn useful skills and techniques for displaying awkward objects. Working alongside members of the Costume & Textile Network, you will make conservation mounts and get tips on how to provide interesting and informative interpretation, whilst experiencing the organised chaos of a real costume exhibition hang!
Places for this session are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Participants should be staff or volunteers currently working with costume and textiles in their museum.
Morning refreshments will be provided, but please make your own arrangements for lunch.
This event is fully booked.
